The life of Margaret Kargbo, the local arts advocate who was killed in a car accident on May 20, will be celebrated Saturday by the Atlanta arts and cultural communities.
Kargbo, 36, along with Frank Barham, died in a traffic accident outside of Savannah. Barham was on a mission to travel 30 miles a day in his wheelchair to complete the trip from Atlanta to Savannah to raise money to provide wheelchairs for those who couldn’t afford them.
Kargbo, a media specialist who worked with non-profits and small arts organizations, was documenting the trip.
“Margaret dedicated her life in support of the arts and social justice,” said Jessyca Holland, executive director of C4 Atlanta, one of Kargbo’s clients. “Her spirit and energy as an advocate and community builder touched the lives of so many people.”
“The Love of Margaret: A Celebration of Life,” will be held at the Aviation Community Cultural Center, 3900 Aviation Circle, Atlanta.
The formal program will be from 11 a.m. and streamed live for those unable to attend.
Beginning at noon Kargbo will be celebrated with featured performances by Julie Dexter, LotusLove, Mausiki Scales and The Common Ground Collective, along with music by DJ Kemit and DJ Jamad.
